Yellow Jacket

Sick airflow, bro. Yellow Jacket® is the Smashingly Durable® portable and mountable fan that takes abuse and stays in use. Available 18- (45.7cm) and 36-inch (91.4cm) pedestals allow you to direct Yellow Jacket’s airflow where it’s needed to keep employees comfortable. Mount it to a column or wall to get airflow in areas with no floor space. If it gets dirty, don’t worry — you can spray it down with a hose to get it squeaky clean. Need to dress it up? Yellow Jacket now comes in optional white and black appearance packages.

Featured Case Study: Primate Rescue Center

The fans make such a difference for our primates. They love the Yellow Jacket with the mister. We thought they would play in the water, but it's such a nice, delicate mist, it's like a blast of air conditioning where they just sprawl out and take naps. Eileen Dunnington, Sanctuary Manager


Big Ass Fans® donated two overhead Haiku® and two portable Yellow Jacket® fans to the center to keep chimps cool. After a period of initial suspicion, chimps in outdoor enclosures now take daily naps in front of Yellow Jacket’s cooling airflow – particularly the one with a misting attachment. One of the Haiku fans keeps the energetic spider monkeys comfortable in the summer and creates uniform temperatures in the winter; plus, the damp-rated fans’ airfoils will never warp due to humidity. A second Haiku cools primates and vets in the medical center.
